Job description

People at Apple don’t just build products — they craft the kind of experience that have revolutionized entire industries. The diverse collection of our people and their ideas inspire innovation in everything we do. Imagine what you could do here! Join Apple, and help us leave the world better than we found it. The Apple Cloud Services (ACS) team builds and provides systems and infrastructure that fuel Apple’s services (such as iCloud, iTunes, Siri, and Maps). We are the foundation on which Apple’s software developers build the products that our customers love. We are looking for passionate and talented Site Reliability Engineers to continue our focus in providing our customers the highest quality Apple Services experience. Our services have to scale globally, stay highly available, and "just work.” If you love designing, engineering and running platforms, thatwill help millions of customers, then this is the place for you!

Apple Cloud Services’ scale is BIG. Operating at our scale, across multiple geographies and servicing hundreds of millions of users presents unique challenges. As a Software Developer in SRE at Apple, you'll need to solve these problems using data, teamwork, and your own expertise. ACS Product and Platform Site Reliability teams are responsible for the reliability and performance of the server software stack that powers products like iMessage, FaceTime, iCloud Photos, Mail, Backup and many more. We do that by focusing on reliability best practices from service inception to production, collaborating deeply with product development teams to deliver a superlative product and shared vision while leveraging data and automation as first principles. We run a mix of open source, vendor licensed, and internally developed tools to manage the end to end SDLC of our products. You'll learn these tools and have opportunities to improve them. We think critically and strive to balance the best solution with the need to get things done for each engineering challenge we face. Good ideas are heard and results are rewarded.
